I only ever did one triethlon, and what I learned is that you need to put some sort of lubrication round the neck of your wetsuit, or you'll risk a big raw area round your neck from wetsuit chafing.............................or maybe it was just me...............
OH- I've always been intruiged by the cape wrath thing, but I'm really bad at consecutive day running unless it is at a snail's pace. Are you doing the full week?- well done beating Elspeth!
Stewart C- I think a few hills does a lot of good- trouble is that I've done so little flat stuff that I'm not used to a decent pace now. Will fix this over the next 6 weeks, as my next marathon is flat.
I felt very lacking in energy this morning on my tready recovery run, although my legs feel OK- probably just due to the rather optimistic early return to high mileage post - ultra..............it's OK, though, holiday next week.
Severe pain on weightbearing needs looked at urgently in case it's a stress fracture- sports physio might be helpful, but so might GP, depending on their level of knowledge/ interest in excercise- related injuries. Meanwhile this sounds like on that needs to be properly rested!
Well done Millsy for being up and dog walking before noon on day 1 post ultra- that's better than average, I think!- most people are still lying in a heap, or are just eating.
Well done Tom13-10k is definately a sprint event-I used to love them , but the thought just makes me shudder at the moment! Not sure I'd want to jog 8 miles after a hard race!
50 parkruns is great, SK- I've only done about 4, must try it again,- would certainly help me push the speed, maybe I'll get a free weekend sometime, but it seems difficult to get free on saturday morninigs.
